Dr. Lemmon was amazing! I felt very comfortable with him the day he met with me. I knew then he was the best choice for what I wanted.”

Dr. Lemmon explained all procedures in a way that I could understand. He and his staff always showed me the utmost care.”

Dr. Lemmon did an excellent job. I could not have imagined that the scarring would be so minimal.”

I came to Dr. Lemmon in 2012 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer and was referred to him by my breast cancer surgeon. We were new to the area so her recommendation to Dr. Lemmon was a godsend! After my mastectomy he patched me up and was very patient when I encountered difficulties. In my opinion, his expertise as a plastic surgeon is excellent and knowing that he has taught doctors at MD Anderson the technique of the tram flap breast reconstruction was very impressive. He never appeared in a hurry and always took the time to answer any questions or concerns I had. I had to contact the office once during a weekend and Dr. Lemmon responded in a very timely manner. When I knew I would be having my last breast surgery I decided to have an arm lift and working with insurance & non-insurance procedures was handled so easily through his office and his office staff were always friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating to help resolve any issues that arose. Would highly recommend!”

Dr. Lemmon made sure I understood all the steps for my procedure and after my appointment when he began to leave the room he turned around at the door and made sure I knew to call if I had any concerns at all. I would rate him as excellent!!”

Best doctor experience I’ve ever had. I actually liked the guy…he was very personable and made me feel totally at ease. He’s very professional. I was confident in his ability to perform the procedure on my face.”

Dr. Lemmon was recommended by my breast cancer surgeon & it turned out to be an excellent recommendation! He is a very professional & caring Dr. and took the time to go over any questions or concerns that I may have had & he never appeared to be in a hurry. If I had concerns outside of my appt. time I felt very comfortable to call and visit with his nurse & either Dr. Lemmon or his nurse would get back to me in a very timely timeframe. The surgical center was a very positive experience – definitely better than having to go to a hospital. Would highly recommend Dr. Lemmon if looking for a plastic surgeon. His office help was also very friendly and helpful!”

My breast surgeon referred Dr. Lemmon for my mastectomy and reconstruction he has been very caring and treated me like family instead of a patient my husband has gone to every appointment with me and he always shakes his hand. When I was in the hospital he came to see me and kept my husband informed on my issues. I’ve been seeing him since July 2012 till present. Wish he was my primary care doctor. He is a perfectionist and his work shows it.”

Dr. Lemmon saved my life. Not with plastic surgery, even though he is top in his field. He saved my life when my cancer doctor gave up on me. Dr. Lemmon stepped in because he loves his patients. He is a true healer, a doctor who will go the long distance with you.”
